West Runton is an appealing seaside village nestled into the north Norfolk coastal landscape and host to one of the largest chalk reefs in Europe. It offers a family friendly, Blue Flag beach with crabbing and fossil hunting and there is also a pub, grocers, train station and two cafes. Rocky Bottom - the local fish restaurant, gym, golf and swimming all to be found within half a mile of the cottage's front door. To the east discover the resort of Cromer with its famous Pier and cliff top walks and further along this stretch of the coast are numerous flat, sandy beaches that are often not over populated even in the summer. Head west and discover the open marshes at Stiffkey and Cley-next-the-Sea and seaside villages such as Blakeney and Wells-next-the-Sea, each with their own unique character. With great pubs, delis, smokehouses, farm shops and eateries there are plenty of places that showcase the produce that Norfolk is justifiably famous for, such as crabs, mussels, cheeses, wines and more. The area is rich in history too with Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall both run by the National Trust and Holkham Hall, the seat of the Earl of Leicester, which is still an independent family-run estate, which are all worth a visit. This is a wonderful part of the county and a holiday here will bring back many happy memories for years to come.


Lovely little cottage, well placed for lots of walks through NationalTrust land and along the coast.

Miss C,

This was our first visit to Norfolk but will definitely not be the last! We have been out from sunrise on Overstrand (magnificent!) to sunset on Cromer beach (beautiful). The dog has been welcomed everywhere even inside restaurants which has made it so much easier. Larkrise is a cosy and welcoming little place to come back to at the end of a day spent exploring the area. It is very well appointed with the coffee machine being a very thoughtful and in the case of one of us at least a very necessary appliance! The welcome pack was the best we have seen catering for sweet and savoury snack attacks along with a nice white wine and gorgeous local apple juice. Thank you for the recommendations of things to do and also for restaurants - particularly The Dun Cow gorgeous lunch with super fresh Brancaster Mussels and Whelk Copper for a hearty breakfast/brunch where in both cases the staff were friendly and welcoming. We have absolutely loved being here and are busily trying to work out when next we can be here.

Ms S,

We loved the cottage and it was so homely and well-equipped and in immaculate condition. The hosts left us a really generous welcome pack, which was a very nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it especially for a couple.

Previous Customer,

Lovely cottage in a good location for exploring the north Norfolk coast. Small but perfectly formed.

Ms P,
